Lesson Study

We use Lesson Study as an essential action research tool to develop teacher collaboration.  Each year we deliver a series of training and reflection sessions which support teachers to conduct specific and informative research, with the aim of developing aspects of teaching and learning according to their school's priorities. The lesson study model, which originates in Japan, enables teachers to adapt their practice based on the observation of a group of target children in order to impact positively on the children's learning.

We also collaborate with many other schools and multi-academy trusts, locally, nationally and beyond, in a range of formal and informal ways. 

These include:

  • The Compass Partnership
  • Exceed Learning Trust
  • Connect to Learning Partnership
  • South Gloucestershire LA
  • Doncaster Partners in Learning
  • Derbyshire Learners First Partnership
  • Knowsley LA
  • Medway LA
  • United Learning Academy Trust
